Riku - The world turned off by NanjoKoji Riku - The world turned off by NanjoKoji
I'm tired and I don't know when to write my next essay, which I have to hand in on thursday, because I've got so much to do.
But I had a good day nonetheless - I got a 2700$ reduction on my new wardrobe. Yeah!

Doesn't have anything to do with the pic, but I wanted to tell that anyway.

We're all defined by darkness.In daylight, everyone can be anything. But at night, when the world is turned off, our true self emerges.

Hm...I've actually been coming across a lot of your images because I searched for Riku specifically. I have a serious thing for that boy. I must say, yours is the best I've seen of him. I don't see too many costumes the impress me, especially in regard to Riku, but you do amazingly well and I do believe this image is my favorite thus far

I don't cosplay, but I have a number of friends who do, which is probably why I'm so bloody picky about how a person's costume looks. Its horrible, I know, seeing as I can't sew for beans and yea....but I can't help it, especially when its a favorite character of mine.

Now, if I could just find someone that does a good Kurama u.u jeez the ones I've seen are horrendous.

Anyway! Keep up the good work. I know you have other costumes that you are likely wanting to do, which I look forward too, but I also look forward to maybe seeing more Riku from you lol (Overly obsessed with that boy, I swear)

Oh...look at that....I started rambling..^^; sorry

XD I like to read long comment, although my answers tend to be much shorter. Sure there's going to be more Riku - how could we not love him!

I've heard a somewhat similar saying...
"People are like stained glass windows. They shine and sparkle when the sun is out, but when darkness falls, their true beauty is only revealed if there is a light from within."
I must say, you seem to have quite a light within you. Good job. ^^

I really like the lines at the end "We're all defined by darkness.In daylight, everyone can be anything. But at night, when the world is turned off, our true self emerges." were they written by yourself?
